LOLLIPOP CHAINSAW Special Edition Announcement Trailer
Published: May 17, 2012 - 8:57am
Lollipop Chainsaw focuses on zombie hunter and cheerleader Juliet Starling, who, along with members of her family and her boyfriend, a disembodied head, fight hordes of zombies in San Romero High School, where Starling formerly cheered. The enemy zombies are led by a group of zombie rock and roll lords.
Lollipop Chainsaw is the ‘un-deadly’ story of sweet and killer zombie-hunter Juliet Starling and her quest to uncover the root of a colossal zombie outbreak. With her wickedly awesome chainsaw in hand, Juliet slices, dices and splits her way through hordes of the undead, but soon realizes the horde is only the opening act to a festival of zombie rock lords determined to kill the chainsaw-wielding cheerleader.
Tara Strong, the renowned voice behind dozens of video game and cartoon characters, including Harley Quinn in last year’s Batman: Arkham City, stars as the game’s central protagonist, Juliet Starling. Michael Rosenbaum, known for his role as Lex Luthor in Smallville, voices the disembodied head of her boyfriend Nick. Outside of the two leads, the rest of the cast is no less impressive with names appearing from all over the film and television industry. Checking in to bring some verve to Cordelia is Linda Cardelleni, known best as Lindsay Weir from the cult classic Freaks and Geeks. Shawnee Smith, one of the stars of the first four Saw films and Michael Rooker, of Walking Dead and Slither, also appear in the game. Veteran TV and film actor Gregg Henry (Slither, Payback, The Riches, Hung) takes on the role of Juliet’s father and brings all the flair one would assume given his Elvis-inspired pompadour and roots as one of the greatest zombie hunters ever.
SUDA 51 and team wanted to make the Lollipop Chainsaw: Special Edition even more Special, and as you can see in this new live-action video, the Lollipop Chainsaw: Special Edition mixes things up with a life-size, hyper-realistic, fully controllable Juliet! By using the intuitive joystick (batteries not included), fans can have Juliet do everything and anything they want! Let’s hope nothing goes horribly wrong…
Lollipop Chainsaw will be available June 12 on Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3.
